With 39billion pounds on the line, it is no wonder the EU Commission doesn’t much care if BREXIT goes forward with No Deal. When in doubt, follow the money.
While the UK ranks third in total contributions/membership fees to the EU, Net Contributions have ranged between 4.7billion pounds to 10.756 billion pounds. Thus with 39 billion on the line, it would take roughly 4-5 years to break-even, assuming a $0 interest rate. The problem? The UK has operated on a budget deficit for largely 65+ years with few exceptions, the most radical deficits occurring during the 2008 financial meltdown.
Problem? The UK doesn’t have 39 billion pounds to give to the EU.
With the EU Commission facing a shortage of funds given the probability of BREXIT, at this point, taking 39 billion and running for the nearest tax free haven would not seem a bad idea. It would also give them the necessary time to schmooze alternate countries into the Union such as Turkey and the Baltics to counter the lost annual revenue from a UK exit.
Given the recent whisper meeting between Juncker and Theresa May that may be exactly what was desired all along.
Theresa May has been in office since 2016. In the UK the term of office is five years, ending 2021 which coincides with Merkels’ and is a year shy of Macron’s 2022 term end. However, none of these officials are remotely popular and their stand-down, resignation has been called for by The People. Theresa May could exit early if the BREXIT debacle doesn’t resolve according to the Will of The People. But, I doubt she really cares. Her legacy is already twalette water.
In contrast, The People in the US have not called for Trump’s resignation, that call has rigidly been made by DC Swamp reptilians from the Democrat and Republican Parties who see their Deep State monetary and power vacuum being sucked into oblivion.
The UK and Germany GDP growth rates hovering in the 1% category would put them on par with Haiti and Azerbaijan, ranking in the bottom 30 of 193 countries. Not exactly a success story to write home to mama. Women unite? Hardly.
The Show, of course, the choreographed in-fighting, was likely staged and rehearsed two years ago with a scripted Act I, II and III resolving in nothing but chaos. The implication that anyone in the UK Parliament actually gave a rats ass, is quickly waning. They didn’t, don’t never have.
In the end, The Swamp that controls the UK, is likely speckled with layers of appointments as to who will be the lackey of the week ridiculed in the press, only to have that honor shift to the next idiot whose finances are secured in the offshore camps of various Panama Accounts awaiting the fall so that they can at last escape into their umbrella cocktails and mermaid prostitutes oblivious to the crash of proletariat servants.
May and Merkel will skulk into the sunset of their ever shrinking geriatric years on this earth, and Macron will be left, the lone wolf, flailing desperately as the tide breeches and he raises an arm to the sky, “Sacre Bleu!” and disappears into the diaspora.
They are all dispensable in the globalist scheme, and they know it. All they want is their island lifestyle to eclipse their dreams and make destroying their own countries, their homeland, worth it.
Meanwhile, a lone Trump is fighting beyond human comprehension to sustain The Politicians that abhor him in the US, to rise above the reptilian and piranha razing of flesh, and recreate a world wherein The People reign.
